Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to be in shape before starting CrossFit?
No way! All of our programming is scalable and can be adjusted to fit your needs. Everyone has to start somewhere, so why not start with CrossFit BC?!
Can I still come if I have a prior injury?
If you have an injury prior to starting with us, our coaches will work with you to come up with movements that you can do while still getting a good workout. Our focus is to ensure that you stay safe and have a good time – regardless of what you can or can’t do.
How many times per week should I workout?
It varies per athlete, but we recommend you start with 2-3 days per week to ensure you give your body enough rest. If you lead a more active lifestyle, 4-5 days. Just make sure you take at least 1 or 2 rest days per week!
I’m new to CrossFit but have been working with a personal trainer. Do I need to do your Foundations program?
YES. This is required before heading into our regular classes. This way, we are able to teach you the fundamentals of the Olympic Weightlifting and gymnastics movements and ensure that you’re doing them correctly. You might be fit, but we as a coaching team want to make sure that we’re sending you into regular classes with some knowledge BEFOREHAND.
If I have completed my on-ramp at another CrossFit gym, do I have to do it at CrossFit BC, too?
No! If you have completed your Foundations at a registered CrossFit affiliate you do NOT have to do it again when you sign up at CrossFit BC. You have already learned the basics and our coaches will still be available to assist you during classes if you have any questions or concerns.
Do you offer classes to drop-ins visiting from out of town?
Most definitely! It is required that you have at least 3 months of CrossFit experience (and have gone through your Foundations at a registered affiliate) before you join us for classes. We want to make sure you have fun and stay safe!
